Many old time games were vey complex using many keyboard commands. Some were of a time when tutorials were not refined or common. Some were in a time when the internet was not widely popular/available to provide information via forums and other information sites. Some were of a time when CD's were not available to fit digital manuals onto.
Yeah, I enjoyed laying back and looking through some of those manuals. I suppose we could still enjoy using our fancy color printers to make the manuals ourselves now.
